Ladies! Did you know that DAME is now officially vegan? ๐ŸŒฑ

Calling all our strong, independent women! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’ช

Looking to make your feminine hygiene as planet-friendly as possible? ๐ŸŒŽ

DAME has world’s first reusable tampon applicator!

This applicator gives you all the comfort of a single-use applicator without the plastic waste.

1.3 million applicators are thrown away in the UK EVERY day.

Use the applicator for life and help save up to 12,000 plastic disposables! โ™ป๏ธ

Not sure what impact your periods have on the planet? Neither did we! DAME have created a period calculator to discover your impact! Go check it out!

DAME’s tampons and pads are all 100% plastic and toxin free. The best part? They are also natural and vegan! ๐ŸŒฑ

Why not celebrate Veganuary by getting hold of your own DAME tampon applicator set?

DAME have made it official with the Vegan Society! ๐ŸŒฑ

Their tampons, pads and newly launching period pants have all now been certified as vegan. This means that DAME is now part of the group of brands in the UK that defends sustainability through Veganism.

Easy right? Everyone thinks animals surely have nothing to do with period products. However, that is wrong to believe! ๐Ÿ‡

Since the start of DAME, the brand decided to do some research on the impact period products have on animals. To start, one of the main reasons period products are not vegan friendly is due to bleaches and scents used. Bleaches used for tampons contain chloride, which is tested on animals. The same applies to pads and pants, where fabric can be treated with dyes, oils, emulsifiers… which contain animal by-products and are tested on animals too. DAME is against this all, but sadly, nearly every tampon and pad you can find in a supermarket store has been treated this way. ๐Ÿ˜”

Vegan Society mainly looks at Animal Testing and Animal Ingredients when auditing products for their Vegan Trademark:

  • Animal Testing: The development and/or manufacture of the product, and its ingredients, must not involve or have involved, testing of any sort on animals conducted at the initiative of the company or on its behalf, or by parties over whom the company has effective control.
  • Animal Ingredients: The manufacture and/or development of the product, and its ingredients, must not involve, or have involved, the use of any animal product, by-product or derivative.
